    What is the need?

    One in six people report experiencing a mental health problem (like anxiety and depression) in any given week in England, according to Mind. The most recent NHS data for August 2023 indicated that 1.76 million people were in contact with secondary mental health services. We live in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic which revealed vulnerabilities of health systems. We have as many people on our waiting list to start counselling as the number we are currently helping, for the first time in our history.

    How does Connect meet the need?

    For the last 29 years, Connect Counselling Service meets this exponential need by being an accessible, no-fee charging Counselling provision in Camberley and the surrounding areas. We strive to be the best that we can and are accredited by the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists. We are unusual in our large size – a team of 32 counsellors – and in the number of sessions we are willing to provide to an individual, weekly sessions for up to two years. At present we are helping more than 80 individuals with accessible and professional counselling. We aim to help every adult over 18, for whom we feel counselling is a suitable way forward.
